LATERBLOG: SO MANY TEMPLES, SO LITTLE TIME

I made a quick trip to Utah where my parents are setting up the next chapter of their lives. They’re empty-nesters now, and we all came together for a “hurrah!” before we all separated once more for who knows how long. Utah’s great for many things, and most of all in my humble opinion, is […]
